Hammock Bliss All-purpose Shelter
April 20, 2011
I got this for tent camping. I have to confess the main reason I bought this brand was the lower price compared to some competitors. The shelter is lightweight and pretty easy to set-up. It's not big enough to protect your backpack very well, or to cook under in the rain, but it provided adequate shade. It came with parachute cord guy-lines and there are tie-down tabs in each corner, although it would be much better if there were also tabs in the center of each side, giving more versatility in set-up and high winds. I did use it in a very strong wind and it held up well. I haven't tried it in the rain yet but it seems there would be adequate coverage in a rain coming straight down. I'm not sure how it will do in a heavier rain with wind because there is not much coverage on the sides. All in all, I am happy with my purchase.Pros: Ease of use, Great value
Great Shelter worked perfectly

I have taken this shelter on a backpack and it took a little more time to set up than I would have liked, but I stayed completely dry through a huge downpour. This shelter is a great buy and much cheaper in price not quality than any other shelter out there. I would definitely buy it again.
